Murderers Freed by Administration: They Were Muslims and This Is a Muslim Country
 

As for those who think the Arab world promises freedom, the briefest study of its routine traditional treatment of blacks (slavery) and women (purdah) will provide relief from all illusion. If Malcolm X had been a black woman his last message to the world would have been entirely different. The brotherhood of Moslem men— all colors— may exist there, but part of the glue that holds them together is the thorough suppression of women.

FEEDBACK: 1/14/05  

FEEDBACK 1/14/05  Hi Jackson,  I read your great article on Islam, but of the countries you listed Armenia stood out. From what I believe this is not a Muslim country (http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/geos/am.html - it lists the religious groups). They had their own genocide (http://www.armenian-genocide.org/genocidefaq.html#What ) by the hands of Turkey (up for E.U. membership later this year!! Crazy!). On the other hand they still need prayers being surrounded by Muslim nations. Anyway thanks for the great article, I’ll point people towards it if they’ve got any misconceptions about Islam (the mainstream media in the UK is telling lies about a ‘religion of peace’ when your article tells the truth).  Yahweh Bless you.  Barry  London , England .

The Nazarene Acts
of the Apostles

Also known as
The Recognitions of Clement

Ever wonder why PAUL and not PETER received the mission to the lost tribes?  Wasn't Peter the stone upon which the "church" was to be built?  In this new translation of the Nazarene Acts, we follow Kefa (Peter) as he itinerates from Jerusalem and up the Mediterranean coast up to Tripoli, as recorded in the journals of his successor, Clement of Rome (Phi 4:3).  Every message Kefa preached, the company he kept, and the great works of faith the the Almighty accomplished through him are herein recorded.  This 300 page volume has been 'hidden' in the back of an obscure volume of the "Church Fathers" all this time.  Could it be that, in establishing the Gentile 'church' by pushing away from Judaism, this history was purposely hidden?

First consider the following article:

TERRORIST BIN LADEN URGES JIHAD AGAINST U.S. AND BRITAIN -- The Electronic Telegraph reported today that exiled Saudi millionaire terrorist leader, Osama bin Laden, suspected by the U.S. and Britain of training the Yemeni Islamic militants who kidnapped 16 western tourists last week, again called for a 'holy war' or Jihad against American and British targets, according to a Time Magazine interview. The article said Bin Laden 'insists that a jihad be waged against Britain and the United States because the bombing of Iraq was carried out "on behalf of Israel and the Jews."' He also supposedly 'hints for the first time that he was involved in bombings in August of US embassies in Africa, in which 224 people were killed, including 12 Americans, and 5,000 injured.' He was quoted as saying, 'Our job is to instigate and, by the grace of God, we did that and certain people responded to this instigation. If the instigation for jihad against the Jews and Americans is considered a crime, then let history be a witness that I am a criminal.' (January 4, 1999)

Frequently now we read about people with strange sounding names from Middle Eastern countries like Saudi Arabia calling for the holy war, or jihad, against Americans, the British and Israelis.

We Americans got a first sour taste of jihad in 1979 when American hostages were taken from the American embassy in Teheran, Iran and not released until 1980. About that same time, America was labeled "the Great Satan" by the charismatic Iranian cleric and dictator, Ayatollah Khamenei.

More recently the world has been disrupted by two international wars with Iran's neighbor, Iraq, and its radical Islamic president Sadam Houssein, the new Nebechadnezzar. Other acts of jihad have claimed thousands of innocent casualties -- including the bombing of the Pan Am flight over Lockerby, Scotland in which over 200 Americans, including many school children, were killed, and the bombing of the World Trade Center in New York. Just a few months ago on August 7, the American embassies in Tanzania and Kenya were simultaneously attacked with car bombs, resulting in hundreds killed and thousands injured.

In the article about Saudi Bin Laden, we have an Islamic millionaire calling for Moslems everywhere to rise up against our country and our closest allies (Britain and Israel) with acts of terror and violent cowardice. Paying for this call to persecution is all the wealth of Middle Eastern crude oil. It's rationale is so radical and evil that peace-loving folks have little capacity to grasp it.

Behind all these acts of terrorism is Islam. (A person who follows Islam is called a Moslem or Muslim.)

In our country, we wonder at the quaintness of Islam when that rare Moslem is seen: a woman at the supermarket with veils and robes; a man on the street with long beard and turban. More rare than finding a Moslem in rural America is finding an American who knows anything about Islam, some sects of which are the sworn enemies of our nation and of our Master Iasu. Yet Islam is now the largest and fastest growing religion in the world, with over 1 billion adherents around the globe. Demographic surveys tell us that by 2025 there will be over 2 billion Moslems, or 25% of the world's population.

What is Islam?

Islam is a pantheistic religion founded by Mohammed in the early 7th century (AD) in Saudi Arabia. "Islam" means "submission," submission to "Allah," the god of the Koran, the holy book of Islam. Islam spread throughout the Middle East and Africa during the 7th century by coersion and violence. Today, Islam encompasses the globe -- Africa, the Middle East, the Far East, the former Soviet Union -- growing at a phenomenal rate in Germany, Great Britain (more Moslems than Methodists in the home of Wesley) and the United States (over 500 Islamic centers here).

Who Is Allah?

We were taught that Islam is one of the "three great religions" that originated in monotheism (defined as "the worship of one God," along with Judaism and Christianity), and that Islam's Allah is the same as the Bible's Iaue (Yahweh, Jehovah).

Nothing could be further from the truth.

In Mohammed's home town, there was a sacred rock (ka'aba) that was possessed (as it was supposed) by 360 different pagan gods living in niches. One of these 360 gods was known as Allah, and Mohammed's father Abdullah ("servant of Allah") was a priest of this rock-god. So Islam originated not in monotheism (worship of one God) or Judaism (worship of Iaue), but in polytheism, the worship of many gods, Allah being just one of these gods which Mohammed exalted above all the rest.

Why Do Some Moslem Hate?

Mohammed was very familiar with the sectarian Catholic Christianity of his day. He mentions Jesus a number of times in the Koran, sometimes very favorably. Still certain sects of Islam hate Christians and Jews, and are dedicated to our extermination or subjugation. Why? Let's find out from the words of Allah himself from the Koran:

The Christians call Christ the Son of God. That is a saying from their mouth. They imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. God's curse upon them (Sura at-taubah, 30).

This verse alone distances Allah from Iaue of the Bible, who sent his Son to save sinners and make friends of them, not to curse them. Yet, in the minds of radical Moslems, we who call Jesus (Iasu) the Son of God are already cursed and ready for the fire of the Islamic hell.

Holy War, Jihad, "Struggle"

In light of the Koran's regard for Christians, threat, murder and conquest soon became Islam's means of evangelisation. When Mohammed tried to propagate his teachings by peaceful means, he was severely persecuted. But when Mohammed took up the sword (as Allah commanded him), things began to change for him and his religion (Sura 2:216). At first, Moslems resisted violent conquest (Sura 4:73ff). But the allure of plunder and the unlimited use of captive women became too tempting for pagan men of violence to resist. At Allah's command, Mohammed led a band of his followers to ambush a defenseless caravan. Afterward, though Mohammed was condemned by the people for this action, Allah offered his divine approval in these words:

Allah promised you many gains that ye will acquire, and hath given you this in advance, and withheld men's hand from you, that it may be a token for the believers and that he may guide you in the right path (Sura 48:20).

Although jihad began as a means of acquiring wealth for warfare, it soon became the religion's accepted method of winning converts. Many suras (chapters) of the Koran teach jihad:

Fight and slay the pagans (i.e. non-Muslims) wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them and lie in wait for them in every stratagem; but if they repent ... then open a way for them (Sura 9:123).

It was a short step from persecuting pagans to persecuting Christians and Jews.

Fight those who believe not in Allah and his apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of truth [even if they are] people of the book [i.e. Jews and Christians] , until they pay with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued [enslaved] (Sura 9:29).

In thirteen years of propagating Islam peacefully, Mohammed won only about 100 people to his cause. But after Allah commanded him to steal, kill and destroy, offering his conquests the choice of Allah or death (and promising wealth for all who would join him), Mohammed was able to muster an army of 30,000. The booty taken in ensuing raids on Mecca, Tabuk, Badr and Ditch was distributed to the terrorists in the name of Allah. (Booty included captured women and children.)

Later, Mohammed's successors launched jihad against Christian strongholds in Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, central Asia and Egypt, forcing millions to confess or be killed. Moslem hoards took Jerusalem, building the famous Dome of the Rock on the site of the Holy of Holies in Jerusalem. (They actually missed the Holy of Holies by about 300 feet, building the mosque over the court of the Gentiles.) They invaded North Africa, Spain, entered France, Russia, then on East through India. Now, 13 centuries later, Islam is still making great strides, paying for its terrorism with promises of heaven for the more gullible and oil money for the less gullible. Literally millions of Christians and Jews have been killed in the course of the jihad. And today, thousands of Christians and Jews are still being persecuted and killed by Moslem extremists bent upon fulfilling a literal interpretation of the Koran's policy on holy war.

Islam's Grand Design

Iranian President Akbar Rafsanjani clarifies the four universal goals of Islam --

(1) to unite all Islamic nations under a coalition government led by Iran and Syria,

(2) to drive all western influences out of the Islamic world,

(3) to "liberate" Palestine from the Jew and infidel,

(4) to replace the Judeo-Christian world order with an Islamic world order.

"Our plan is to overthrow all Western influence in the Middle East and then overthrow the Judea-Christian world order," he proclaimed. With Islam growing at such an alarming rate, it being rich with oil, and with daily acts of terrorism drawing closer and closer to home, it seems that only the intervention of the Almighty can bring this Beast down. Certainly the day has come that the Lord Jesus predicted, when "whoever kills you will think he's doing Allah a service."

What Can We Do?

Late at night on January 10th I asked the Father what just us few people could do to stem the tide of Islam. (It's almost laughable that we presume we could make any difference at all.) I did not expect the answer I received. The Father pointed me back to his well-used promise: I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh. "Ask me to pour out my Spirit on the Islamic nations," the quiet voice continued. How can it be that God would pour out his Spirit upon such religious heretics?

I was reminded that, in this last century, the Father poured out his Spirit upon every kind of heathen at the instigation of someone's prayer. I have read that many old-line Pentecostals couldn't believe Iaue would pour out his Spirit on Catholics as he did in 1967, with all their "idolatry." (Thus began the Catholic charismatic movement, an act of Divinity.) Despite the opinions of good folks, HE is sovereign after all. And Iaue can do it again if we pray.

And I remembered the story of the Turks (Ephesians) in Acts 19: Paul said to the people, Have you received the Holy Ghost? And they said, We have not heard of any Holy Ghost. When Paul laid hands on them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.

PRAY FOR THE MOSLEM NATIONS

Ephesus was a pagan city when the Holy Ghost was poured out there. Today Ephesus is in Turkey and is Moslem. Can not the Father pour out his Spirit upon Turkey now if we pray, just as he did in those prior days as recorded in Acts 19?

Father, pour out your Spirit on Turkey. On Syria. Iran. Iraq. Saudi Arabia.

Yemen. Qatar. Kuwait. Oman. Muscat. Pakistan. India. Afghanistan. Palestine. Jordan.

Turkmenistan. Kyrgyzstan. Tajikistan. Uzbekistan. Azerbaijan. (Armenia.) Albania. Bosnia.

Lebanon. Egypt. Algeria. Tunisia. Libya. Nigeria. Liberia. Morocco. Sudan. Ethiopia. Mauritania. Somalia.

Great Britain. Israel. Germany. Australia. America.

And all the rest.

O SEND YOUR FIRE!

{Use this list of Moslem countries at prayer time and let's see what our Father can do. (And don't forget to pray for his secret Apostles sent to these dangerous places.) Pray now, before you leave this page!}

Yemen Official: Bin Laden Behind U.S. Cole Bombing

SANAA (Reuters) - A senior Yemeni security official said Tuesday that a recently arrested suspect had confessed that Saudi dissident Osama bin Laden was linked to the apparent suicide bombing of a U.S. destroyer that killed 17 U.S. sailors.

He said the suspect was a brother of a Yemeni sought by Sanaa for operating two guest houses, one in the northern Yemeni town of Saada and another in the Saudi city of Jeddah.

The senior official, who declined to be identified, said both houses had been used by Islamic Afghan Arab militants, said by Yemen to be behind the October 12 (2000)bombing of the USS Cole.

``This person gave information asserting that the Afghan Arab group which attacked the Cole was linked to bin Laden,'' he told Reuters.

Washington has accused bin Laden, who is believed to live in Afghanistan, of masterminding the 1998 attacks on two U.S. embassies in Africa.

It has also named him as one of the suspects in the Cole bombing. He has denied any involvement in the attack.

The official declined to identify the suspect in custody, but said the suspect's brother was still at large along with two other fugitives believed to be directly linked to the bombing.

He said the three had initially fled to neighboring Saudi Arabia, but might have since left the kingdom for an unknown destination.

Witnesses have said that two men in a boat laden with explosives blew up the vessel alongside the Cole while the warship was making a refueling stop at Yemen's southern port of Aden.

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh told Reuters last month that suspects under interrogation were ``elements who were in Afghanistan, therefore it is possible to link them with bin Laden.''

Yemeni Interior Minister Hussein Mohammed Arab was quoted on Thursday as saying that an interrogation of six suspects in custody has shown that they were involved in the bombing and that 10 others were being questioned to determine if they were linked to the attack.

Yemen Links Six to Cole Blast, Questions 10 Others

SANAA (Reuters) - Yemen has proof that six people in custody were involved in the apparent suicide attack on the USS Cole in Aden in October, and is questioning more suspects, the interior minister said in remarks published on Thursday.

Hussein Mohammed Arab told a government newspaper that the investigation of the six suspects was complete and had proved their involvement in the October 12 attack on the destroyer.

Arab told the weekly 26 September that the authorities were questioning 10 other people suspected of links to the blast in the port of Aden, which killed 17 U.S. sailors and injured more than 30.

Witnesses reported seeing two men aboard a small boat that drew alongside the Cole while the destroyer was refueling, and then exploded, tearing a big hole in the side of one of the most advanced U.S. warships.

Yemeni officials have said the six suspects, including civil servants alleged to have provided other suspects with forged documents, will stand trial in January.

President Ali Abdullah Saleh said last month that the authorities were still looking for a key suspect and that it was possible Saudi dissident Osama bin Laden was involved.

Bin Laden, who is believed to live in Afghanistan, has been accused by the United States of masterminding the 1998 attacks on two U.S. embassies in Africa. He has denied involvement in the Cole attack.

The attack on the Cole took place amid growing anti-U.S. sentiment in the Middle East over what many Arabs see as U.S. support for Israel in the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Arab also said a man alleged to have been behind small bomb attacks on a church and a hotel in Aden this week had been arrested, but two other suspects were still at large.

On Monday a grenade exploded in a church, damaging a wall. Two grenades were thrown at a hotel but missed their target and landed in the sea.

Security in Aden has been tight since the Cole bombing.
